How to Beat Age Discrimination in Hiring


Age is a point of weakness for job hunters in today’s economy. Because of this, older people can become easily discouraged when looking for a job.

But this should not be the case. If you are an older job hunter, you can find ways to reframe your circumstances and highlight your strengths. Workers over 50 add tremendous value to organizations because of their high level of engagement, stability, productivity and experience.

Some companies actually prefer to hire older workers because they are less likely to look for another job than younger workers, and this decreases the high cost of hiring.
